Artist Statement


I’ve been lucky enough to have varied experiences with animals. I’ve grown up around cattle ranches and rodeos, watched elk herds in amazement, learned to track bison and deer, and held little mice. My fascination with the natural world has translated into my art practice, through which I depict animals and their interactions with humans, telling stories and fragmented narratives of conflict and consequence. My work often depicts ideas of human comfort and consumption and their connection to environmental disturbance and decay.

In creating stories that reveal the symbolic weight placed upon animals as well as the consequences of human interaction, my work attempts to reveal the perspective of the animal, to produce compassion for nature, and to serve as a warning to care for nature properly.
